    Default odd vec c problem, electric window

    i have a problem with my drivers front window. its happened 3 times now in a matter of days. it goes up and down fine with no issues. however on 3 seperate times now after locking up, when going back to the car later on my drivers side front is wide open.

    now its either me not shutting it (which i doubt as ive never done it before now lol)

    or i'm doing it up as i get out the car, and its acting like something is in the way so for safety it drops back down again, or the knock from shutting the door kicks in the safety, (will silicone spray fix this?) but as i said, it goes up and down fine with no resistance) but im 99% sure i let it close before getting out/locking anyway, and again, ive never had that problem before so dont see why it would start now

    and i cant be lowering it with the key as it would open the passenger side aswell so its not that

    are there any other things that can cause this problem?

    your not holding the open button after you unlock the car are you ? if you hold the lock button when you lock the car the windows go up if open,if you hold the open window the window goes down.

    failing thatwork some rubber and vynil care into the seals leave it on over night and the seals will soften up nicely.

    nope defo not that, as the passenger side would open too, and that stays completly shut
    thinking towards the vinyl care route, can only think its getting stuck somehow after engine is off, and hitting the safety thing, and dropping open again ,strange thing is though when i test it, it moves freely

    it could be a regulator module problem i have seen this type of fault before im not sure if the vec has window modules on the window motors its normaly caused by water getting in and soaking the module causing it to go a bit nuts then eventualy stop working not saying thats your prob mate but it may be worth looking in to
